brill Scophthalmus rhombus, a flatfish of European waters which is closely related to the turbot; indeed, it could be described as a slightly smaller (maximum length 60 cm/24"), shallow-water version of the other. It differs slightly in shape, and also in having scales but not having tubercles. It is not as fine to eat, but good nonetheless.
